Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

New Houston LGBT chamber of commerce forms

Houston has many different chambers of commerce that identify with different geographic regions and demographics. Beginning this spring, the LGBT community will have one as well. Roughly 3.3 percent of the Greater Houston area identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, according to a recent Gallup poll, but there is no chamber of commerce that represents and promotes LGBT-owned businesses, said Tammi Wallace, co-chair of the steering committee. "There's an LGBT chamber of commerce in?

Five former presidents lend voices to hurricane recovery benefit concert

COLLEGE STATION - Politics were cast aside Saturday as the five former living presidents appeared together in College Station at a relief concert for victims of hurricanes that hit Houston and devastated other parts of the country over the last two months. Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter held their hands over the hearts on stage as the national anthem blared behind them. A sold-out audience of 11,000 people cheered as the presidents walked out into the crowd at Reed Arena at Texas A&M University to cap off a national effort that has already raised $31 million. "As heartbreaking as the tragedies that took place in Texas, in Florida, in Puerto Rico and the U.S.

Trump likely to release sealed documents on JFK assassination

WASHINGTON - Five decades after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, the political whodunit remains fodder for hordes of conspiracy theorists, including armchair historians, professional scholars and even President Donald Trump. Until now, Trump's signature contribution was promoting an unsubstantiated tabloid story linking the 1963 assassination to Cuban emigre Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, Trump's fiercest opponent in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. But as president, Trump is the only person who can block the scheduled release of the last batch of secret government documents about the JFK assassination.

ACLU says Dickinson hurricane repair grant application violates Constitution

The ACLU is calling the city of Dickinson's hurricane repair grant application unconstitutional because it asks applicants to not boycott Israel, according to a news release from the civil rights nonprofit. The city posted on its website that grant applications are being accepted for money donated to the Dickinson Harvey Relief fund. The application allows residents to apply for funds to help in rebuilding a home or business impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Applicants must agree that they "will not boycott Israel during the term of this agreement," according to the form.

EPA approves plan to stabilize San Jacinto Waste Pits

The Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday that it has approved a plan to stabilize the riverbed near the San Jacinto River Waste Pits Superfund site to address the hazards of a 20,000-square foot area where Hurricane Harvey gouged a pit about 12 feet deep. At the same time, the EPA and companies responsible for the cleanup say further inspection and tests indicate that a temporary concrete cap appeared to have held during the storm and therefore a major leak of cancer-causing dioxins was averted at the site of Interstate 10 near Channelview. The San Jacinto Waste Pits is one of 43 Superfund sites in the coastal areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. It's the only site that required additional followup and repairs, the EPA says.

Their homes in disrepair after Harvey, Hindu community celebrates Diwali

Last fall, as the days grew shorter and the weather cooled, Sheetal Parwal began preparing her home for Diwali. The house was thoroughly cleaned, clutter discarded and colorful rangoli sand art laid out to welcome friends and neighbors into her home to celebrate the annual Hindu Festival of Lights with sweets, extravagant dinners and prayers to the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi. This year, Parwal and her family will celebrate a holiday meant to bring good fortune and prosperity in a rented apartment - their Katy house sitting gutted miles away after taking on 2 feet of water during Hurricane Harvey. "We came back to see a week later," Parwal said. "But home is not home.
